Work on buildings nears finish

Project: Moringa Project (formerly Traditional Healthcare) Datam

Posted by Patrick O'Neill over 10 years ago

Traditional Healthcare project in Datam. Roof construction commences January 2012.

I have just returned from 3 weeks in Datam. Spent much of this time continuing soil making, meeting local authorities who might help us and getting buildings ready for roofing

A major job is the courtyard and associated stormwater control. This is being held over until the roofs are on as it would have interferred too much with building construction.

Implementing the permaculture plan  is being delayed by a lack of permanent water supply and site fencing. The project requires fencing to prevent herding animals from destroying the gardens and orchard trees.  The government has said it will pay for this infrastructure and thus we are at the mercy of their timing.

A crew will head over to datam sometime later this year to construct compost toilets and animal shelters, to lay out irrigation system and to begin orchard and herb garden plantings .

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
